Where is Spring?
« on: April 11, 2011, 11:06:02 AM »

This year Spring is slow in comming to New Jersey.  Low temperatures, rain, cold spells, very few nice warm Spring days.  My one surviving hive is moving along but I allready see a great diference between last year and this year. Last year this very hive swarmed in mid April and I am predicting it will swarm in late April mid may! Either way I hope I will catch it. I got artificial lures and a swarm lure set up. 

Hope your bees are comming along.

Last year, we had a great, early spring. This year it sucks! Pretty consistently well below normal temps. I sure hope it picks up soon!
